The Hunger Moon
Tree branches with snow
A log drying on the hearth
Fig tree wrapped for Winter
In the Old Farmers Almanac there is a name given to each full moon of the year. Starting tonight is the full moon known as the Snow Moon or Hunger Moon, because it appears during one of the coldest months. The full moon will last Wednesday through Friday, February 16-18.
As the name aptly describes, here in the Northern Hemisphere we are at a time when the ground is still frozen and not much is growing. But we are also past the half-way point between the Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox; so Spring is right around the corner!
